You're right, we probably just want to change that extension to avoid
the annoyance, rather than fixing every other tool out there. In the
meantime, if you have cygwin/unixutils or something like that on your
PC, you could try piping the dir command through grep to exclude any
dirname files, e.g.,

[your dir command] | grep -v "dirname.mp3" > [your output file]

The mp3list.vbs script (bundled with the dirname generating script) will
exclude those dirname files for you. Just drag the folder you wish to
create a playlist for onto the script and it'll make a playlist (named
after the folder) and put it in the folder containing the script -
that's why I keep the script in my playlists folder. =)
